The Biocare range of optimised Antibody diluents are called the Revival Series and they consist of Da Vinci Green, Monet Blue, Van Gogh Yellow and Renoir Red. These colour coded diluents provide improved antibody titres and are extremely stable for long-term storage. Comparison with PBS-based and Tris-based diluents have shown in the majority of cases a 2 to 4 times improvement in titres. Greater dilution of primary antibodies provides higher specificity, thus potentially eliminating false positives.
- Increase titres
- Reduce background staining
- Protease and IgG free
- Ready to use
Revival Series - Da Vinci (PD900)
Previously named: Universal Antibody Diluent (MP-900)
A pH 7.3 diluent with protein carrier and preservative. This is an excellent universal diluent.
Revival Series - Monet (PD901)
Previously named: Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent A (MP-901)
This is a pH 7.9 diluent which also uses Assure Technology with pH indicator. As in the previous diluent, a change in pH results in a colour change. A change in diluent colour from pale blue to green or yellow indicates that optimal staining may be compromised.
Revival Series - Van Gogh yellow (PD902)
Previously named: Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent B (MP-902)
Van Gogh yellow is specifically formulated to enhance certain types of antibodies and may increase titres up to 2-4 times.
Revival Series - Renoir (PD904)
Previously named: Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent C (MP-904)
Formulated at pH 6.0, Renoir red is specially designed to work with Tris-based antibodies, rinsing buffers and/or detection systems that use alkaline phosphatase.
Renaissance Background Reduce (PD905)
Reviously named: Non Specific Staining Reducing Antibody Diluent (MP-905)
This antibody diluent is specially formulated to reduce the occurrence of nonspecific background with antibodies used in IHC techniques: (e.g. Synaptophysin, PLAP, Kappa, and Lambda). There are added potent background-reducing agents to dramatically reduce any unwanted background staining.
